2013 Bründlmayer "Alte Reben" Grüner Veltliner Kamptal

SKU #1229449 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Creamy, rounded freshness with an immensely savory core of sage, arugula and white pepper make for an understated but seriously delicious white. There is weight and importance here, but it is lightly worn. The spicy, almost salty flavors keep you wanting more. Inner quote mark (3/2015)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Quite broad and caressing on the palate yet at the same time generously juicy with honeydew melon, tangy apple and rhubarb, this wine mingles pungent, nutmeg-tinged green herbs with savory, sweetly-smoky blond tobacco, finishing long on saliva-inducing salinity, subtly peppery bite, ore-like mineral depth, and a winsome sense of extract sweetness. Having been picked later than Bründlmayer’s Berg Vogelsang or Loiserberg Grüner Veltliner, not to mention those vineyards that informed his Erste Lage bottlings, this was quite correctly judged unlikely to benefit from any malolactic transformation. (DS) Inner quote mark (11/2015)

K&L Notes

"Alte Reben" means "old vines"; fruit for this production comes from Brundlemayer's oldest vineyards with vines averaging 50 years old. These older vines give naturally low yeilds of intensely concentrated fruit for wines with added weight and richness. Fermented in used (2-3 years old) Austrian oak casks, followed by racking to large used barrels, the 2012 exhibits perfectly ripe white peach, lime, green apple and pear aromas and flavors, with floral, pepper, and snap pea highlights. Framed by clean, vibrant acid, the palate is creamy and round, with excellent density, minerality, and length in the finish. Willi Brundlmayer is one of Austria's most famous winemakers.
